Do the lungs or heart pump oxygenated blood through the body?

The right ventricle pumps oxygen poor blood to the heart through the pumonary artery. (Correction- the right ventricle pumps oxygen-poor blood FROM the heart TO the lungs, not… to the heart, through the right and left pulmonary arteries. The only thing that could be considered to pump blood to the heart is the "muscular pump" which is the skeletal muscle which, when it contracts, helps squeeze blood back towards the heart for venous return from the lower systemic veins.)
Blood is pumped through the body by the heart by two different circuits, one of the circuits in the systemic circuit and the second circuit is the pulmonary circuit. The syst…em circuit, starts via the left atrium and passing the mitral valve down into the left ventricle. The ventricle will then contract shortly after the atria have started relaxing and followed by the closing of the atrioventricular valves, so blood does not back wash into the atrium. Pressure will becoming higher in the left ventricle allowing ventricular systole's second phase to begin by forcing blood through the aortic semilunar valve up into the aorta so blood may reach the rest of the tissues in the body. Afterwards, the ventricles will becoming diastoling (relaxing) and pressure is now higher in the aorta then it is within the ventricles and this will cause back flow of blood back down to the ventricles but the aortic semilunar valve is has shut itself so blood may not backwash back into the ventricles. During this time, blood will be slowly returning back into the left atrium by ventricular diastole second phase & atrial systole but do note that the atrioventricular valves are still closed so blood doesn't wash into the ventriculars. Blood will travel through arteries then to arterioles and lastly to capillaries so it may begin a gas exchange of oxygenated blood to the tissues to unoxygenated blood back to the heart, via the capillaries, venules, veins then superior & inferior vena cava. Next is the pulmonary circuit which it will return the deoxygenated blood into the right atrium via the superior/inferior vena cava down the tricuspid valve to the right ventricle and blood will be forced up into pulmonary trunk via the pulmonary semilunar valve to the pulmonary arteries via the ventricular systole (same exact process as systemic circuits.) It will then travel towards the lungs, via the ateries then arterioles and capillaries once again but this time the capillaries with run along aveoli which are air sac's of the lungs that control the gas exchange between our atmosphere's....So, as you breath out you are going to be releasing the carbon dioxide from the tissues that were collected from those veins and transported via the arteries but as you breath in. oxygen will be inhaled back into the aveoli and will now allow oxygenated blood to return it back into the pulmonary venules then to the pulmonary veins to return back to the heart so it may re-enter back into left atrium and pass the mitral valve into the left ventricle via ventricular systole and back through the aortic semilunar valve to the aorta and to the rest of the bodies tissue.
Oxygen rich blood from the lungs enters the heart through the leftatrium in order for your heart to pump the blood to other areas ofthe body. The aorta pumps the oxygenated bl…ood to the rest of thebody.
Pulmonary trunk which branches into the pulmonary arteries
Does oxygenated blood flow back to the heart from the body and then gets pumped to the lungs for more oxygen?
No, deoxygenated blood flow back to the heart from the body, and then gets pumped to the lungs to get more oxygen.
Through your veins or your arteries.. Through your veins or your arteries.
Hmmm... well if the heart didnt plump blood thru our body we woukd be dead... no!! it dosent!! wat do u think?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
The heart pumps blood around the body because it carries oxygen and glucose to the brain, without them a person will loose consciousness. Muscles need oxygen, glucose, amino a…cids, sodium, calcium and potassium salts in order to contract normally, these are all carried through the blood in our bodies from the foods we eat and the air we breathe. Without blood circulating the body, it begins to shut down and after a very short period of time will die.
pulmonary artery, to the lungs capillaries where the blood is oxygenated
The Aorta, the main artery. It leaves the heart from the left ventricle and delivers oxygen rich blood to the body.
What is The chamber of the heart that pumps oxygen rich blood through the aeorta and throughout the body?
The left ventricle.
Which side of the heart collects blood from the lungs and pumps it through the body And which circuit is this?
no it doesnt or you would be breathing in blood and that makes no sense.
In Circulatory System
right side i think
The right side of the heart does this.
